I’d like to talk about something besides Sony, but every time I think that I’ve heard the weirdest thing possible, this happens.
Sony, if you’re going to create malicious software to prevent people from “stealing” you should really be more careful about where you get your source code.
Yeah, you heard it right. Sony stole portions of their now notorious DRM from the open source mp3-encoder LAME.
By the way, I’m pretty sure that the open-source community doesn’t look too kindly on signing an “Open Invention” agreement with your left hand, while violating our copyrights with the other.
